*this might not actually be the easiest or best balsamic dressing, but it’s REALLY easy and REALLY good, okay?
You will need:
- Balsamic Vinegar (it’s okay to buy an inexpensive bottle, it tastes great and will last a long time)
- 1 clove garlic
- olive oil
- a little bowl to mix your dressing in
- a fork or mini-whisk
Crush your clove of garlic - I mean really smash it up! Toss it in your bowl or jar.
Salt it and add as much Balsamic as you like.
Crush the garlic and salt up into the balsamic vinegar. Let this mixture sit for as long as you can wait (recommend at least half an hour) - the longer you let it sit the better / more flavorful it will be!
When you’re ready to dress your salad, slowly whisk in olive oil until the ratio is how you like it (I just eyeball this step to be honest. Probable end up with a 3:1 - 1:1 ratio)
** If you want to make the mixing step even easier, use a jar (like a mason jar) instead of a little bowl, and just put the lid on and shake it up when you want to mix it! Plus this way you can make a larger batch and just keep the leftover dressing in your fridge - just give it another shake when you’re ready to dress your salad!
